Environmental impact

The project will attain and exceed the targets set by the Advisory Council for Aeronautics Research and Innovation in Europe (ACARE) for 2020 and will be going beyond the CO2 reductions to be achieved by on-going FP6 and FP7 programmes including Clean Sky:

The contribution to future LEMCOTEC powered aircraft engines to these reduction goals are

  • 20-30% for CO2,
  • 65-70% for NOx,
  • and up to 75% for Smoke, UHC and CO,

depending on the engine type on which they are implemented.

In addition it will reduce the weight of the propulsion system as a whole (engine including nacelle without pylon)

Most importantly, LEMCOTEC addresses the particular challenge in delivering these benefits simultaneously!
